Tree Pollarding Thurrock

Tree pollarding is often asked for by local authorities who need to manage public safety. It involves removing the crown of a tree, with only the main trunk system remaining. It is not always the most aesthetic option for residential gardens, so if you are a homeowner with trees that need some form of control, get in touch and we’ll advise you on the best method.

What is tree pollarding?

Tree pollarding is used Thurrock wide to maintain the height of a tree. Once it has been pollarded, a tree will continue to grow, albeit very slowly. Its growth rings will get smaller, so this is a long term fix. Pollarding is beneficial for trees that are growing on roadsides where their canopies overhang the public highway and collide with high-sided vehicles and buses. It also works well for trees situated nearby overhead power cables or railway lines.

If you have a tree in your Thurrock garden that has outgrown its space, it may be more beneficial to choose crown lifting or tree reduction. These services work to control the size of the tree whilst keeping it looking beautiful.

  • Thorny or spiky trees – including monkey puzzle, holly and hawthorn trees. Been turned down for tree pollarding on account of your tree being thorny or spiky? You won’t find that with TH Trees Ltd. Whatever your tree in Thurrock, if it needs pollarding, we’ll get down to the work without question.
  • Eucalyptus trees – including the most common species, the cider gum tree. This species is found in abundance along the Essex coast.

Common diseases affecting Thurrock trees

When we carry out tree pollarding Thurrock wide we always scan the trees for symptoms of disease or decay. This is essential as disease and decay can weaken the branches of a tree, which in turn can pose a risk in the form of potential breakages. Plus it is usually a sign that the tree needs attention to bring it back to full health.

A vital aspect of our service is identifying and treating diseases, fungi and pest infestations. If you are concerned that your tree may be suffering from disease or a fungal or pest infestation, our guide to common tree diseases and pests should prove helpful. If you have any specific worries, do not delay in contacting us for tailored advice. It may literally save the life of your tree.

When is the best time for tree pollarding Thurrock wide?

Tree pollarding, unless required in an emergency for health or safety reasons, should be avoided during the bird nesting season which runs from February to August. At TH Trees, we always check for nesting birds at ALL times of the year because we are committed to preserving our valuable wildlife.

The active growth period of the tree should also be avoided when it comes to pollarding. This usually falls between late spring and early winter, although it can vary from species to species. This is because when actively growing trees are cut, they bleed sap, which attracts bugs which carry diseases which can infect the tree. Whilst any emergency tree work can be undertaken, it is beneficial to refrain until the tree enters its dormant phase. Take a look at our news and tree ID pages for advice on the optimum time to prune your tree, or contact us for tailored advice.

You will also need to consult the local authority TPO register if your tree is of notable interest or if it is situated in a conservation area. If it is protected by a Tree Preservation Order (TPO) then the amount of pollarding allowed will be limited and you will need permission from your local authority to go ahead. This can take up to eight weeks to be provided.
